All manuscripts must be uploaded through the Elsevier Editorial System after logging in as an author (new authors are required to register first). Visit the home page of the journal at and choose the link ‘Submit your paper’ from the menu on the left side of the page.



The journal follows the standard review process. Guidance to reviewers – although not specific to Applied Ergonomics – is available here; prospective authors may also benefit from the guidelines:



Applied Ergonomics allows the authors the option of ‘Your Paper Your Way’, introduced by Elsevier some years ago. The option moves the burden of preparing the paper exactly according to the format prescribed by the journal to the revision stage: fresh submissions are accepted as single files (in Word or in PDF) and need not follow a set style, although they need to be consistent.



The impact factor for 2014 was 2.023 and the current 5-year impact factor is 2.143.
